and teach you. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. i got two of them here. you've got the good economy. tremendous housing numbers, miraculous retail sales, terrific oil and gas markets. you have the bad economy. weakening commodity prices. slow commercial real estate business. really bad world commerce outlook. real soft information technology sales. you mix them all up together and you get the absolute perfect environment for the fed reserve to stay stock market friendly. that's exactly what happened today. ben bernanke allowed the averages to power higher. dow gained 56 points. the s&p rising today, nasdaq jumping .78%. it's not sleight of hand or alchemy at work here, despite what critics say when they constantly slam the fed. >> boo! >> bernanke is not playing a game of move the stock market higher by simply continuing to keep the competition from bonds incredibly weak. he's got a real good reason for doing what he's doing, which is staying the course, keeping rates low. that reason? 1937. see, ben bernanke is a rigorous guy. he's a professor and a genuine scholar of american financial histor
. make no mistake housing and -- two big drivers of this economy and i think we'll be pleasantly surprised when we get this housing starts number. of course, the fed bull from hell crowd will ratchet up their bets. that lightning will strike on wednesday if they see a strong number. and i think they will be, unfortunately, unpleasantly surprised when they see it because nobody in that crowd wants to see any good. i actually like things that are good. old fashioned. housing's so strong that it's lifting all boats including brunswick by the way and the housewares. so let's listen to william sonoma conference call on their earnings on tuesday to be sure the carryover's intact. now, i'm thinking this may be long in our ever expanding great index or maybe it's the greater gatsby index. i once bought a pot for like $200. it was a big, round cast iron, red thing and then i saw it at the jersey shore outlet for almost half the price. and i am still kicking myself. eighth anniversary, nothing's changed. now, we use a ton of gauges to measure things like retail sales and employment around
states' economy -- housing is uniquely american. a lot of building products go into homes made right here. think about all the people who touch a home and away from its permit to its sale, builders, laborers, people who make piping, windows, doors, stoves, air conditioning, sinks, toilets, showers, baths, and, of course, electric and plumbing. then there's all the white collar jobs, the banks, sales, lawyers, they all get paid. and the retailers who need to make the place great. to me we will look back on this moment and recognize that while the whoever republican do you say rules imposed on the cypriots certainly damaged confidence in europe and the euro once again, what actually might have mattered in america is that the housing boom was picking up steam at the same time. i know, stupid. brilliant! so what am i asking for here. i'm trying not to be too positive or negative. but i'm definitely playing the skeptic. i worry about what i know and even worry about what i don't know. but most important, i want to emphasize what could drive the market either way. and the bottom line is, i thin
and i'm concerned if i see the strength in the economy and i see the stocks of companies that benefit from higher rates benefit than the ones getting hurt, then the fed's got to see it, too, right? i think we've come a long way when the fed was clueless and ben bernanke knew nothing. here's the bottom line. the charts say higher rates are coming and they're coming faster than we realize because of a rising economy. that's not going to be slowed by cyprus in particular or europe or even china. that means you got to sell the consumer packaged goods and wait for a price break to buy the insurers like the metlife. sure, the charts can be wrong, but not every single one of them. stay with cramer. >>> coming up, game time. cramer's got a new take on an old favorite family pastime. all this week, he's taking a look at companies with a stranglehold on their industries that may give their stocks a boost. tonight jim's checking out the friendly skies to find out if it's time to take off. [singing] hoveround takes me where i wanna go... where will it send me... one call to hoveround and you'll b
really silent since saying the budget sequester will produce very big lay-offs and a weakened economy. he's gone radio silent. we know next week that will be the week when the president will most likely use his podium to talk about how horrible sequestration will be, because it kicks in at the end of the month. perhaps the excellent jobless numbers we got this morning will be the last good one if it's as bad as obama scares us into thinking it is. we know that local and state governments are cutting back. that's not positive. finally, there is this missed quarter evidence. federal express did blow up. it was not a good number. caterpillar is down 12%, retail sales number might not translate into weak earnings. i was prepared for cat sales to be flat, maybe up a little, not down double digits. then we got oracle. while oracle almost always bounces back, making my charitable trust which owns the stock want to buy more, i have to believe the macroenvironment has gotten worse than we thought. oracle is not that bad a company. you don't want to get too negative either. what could be right? whi
. it will remain the pattern as long as the economy keeps growing and it will be the pattern as far as the eye can see. i want to take callers now. i did a mess with the cheerios boxes here. mark in new hampshire. >> caller: jim, how are you? >> i hurt my back on saturday. >> caller: boo-yah, brother. i've got a question for you. i own monster. i did really well. was up by 200%. i didn't sell it like an idiot. now it's down and should i dump it down because of the heart attacks and last week's study about the heart conditions, all that good stuff? i don't know if i should dump it, even though i'm up a little bit and take that and maybe buy something else to try to get my position down. >> first of all, you're too hard on yourself. when you say you're an idiot, that's the way i talk. don't be like me. you're going to have to take medicine. here's the problem. there have been a couple senators writing letters about monster and the letters read real bad, okay? you don't want senator -- we have enough problems with stocks. we don't want senators putting the hate on you. hi, hater, i'm a seller. sell,
